Saturday, August 16: Quiles & Cloud w/ KC Turner & Thunderegg

Music at 8 pm; Doors at 7:30 pm

“Quiles & Cloud create songs that are scenes of life sung in soft spoken harmonies. Somewhere between Nora Jones, Iron & Wine, and The Civil Wars. Their music takes you on a journey haunted with memories.” 
Cookie Marenco, Producer/Engineer/Owner 
at Blue Coast Records/OTR Studios

There is something remarkable in a live performance. A connection of minds and poetry that only exists in that special place and time. For Quiles & Cloud, making records is simply a way to document brief moments like these so that they may be remembered and shared with others.

When Quiles & Cloud perform, this mentality is evident within the first passage. Each note resonating with intent from a place beyond the instruments. In a space occupied by appreciative listeners, this graceful motion in music is felt collectively, weaving a path that’s personal and welcoming at every turn.

It’s no surprise the group chose to continue this tradition of live recording with their sophomore release, Seminole Star. The album was recorded live to 2″ tape at OTR Studios in Belmont, CA with Cookie Marenco, a legend in the high resolution audio world with a masterful ear for live recording.

Opening for Quiles & Cloud are two poet/musicians, two representatives of San Francisco's burgeoning music scene, two good friends, two guys take to the American road to do what guys do when they take to the American road, including but not limited to adventuring, carousing and connecting with folks by way of their songs about love gained and lost.

On their current cross-country tour, KC Turner and Thunderegg are living the dream as highway bards, two-fisted poets who can hold an audience, hold their liquor and turn a phrase with the best. They each have the ability to craft intelligent songs, songs rendered with charm and wit that pierce to the heart of the human experience.

KC Turner is a singer/songwriter who uses his guitar, voice and presence to put across heartfelt songs to delighted audiences, often with a touch of humor and a kind of breezy, self-aware wisdom. The songs on his most recent CD, “I Wanna Be Your Guy,” demonstrate his deft touch as hecommunicates his emotional truth.

With his roots in the Midwest, KC is a prominent music promoter in his beloved San Francisco, where he has presented some of his favorite singer/songwriters, some of his major influences, many with national stature, in house concerts and at top music venues all around the Bay Area.

Thunderegg is the band, the recording project and the monicker of Will Georgantas, based for many years in Brooklyn, now operating out of San Francisco. Highly-intelligent lyrics, memorable melodies and very accessible music are the hallmarks of Will’s songs. His grace, strength and sweetness shine through his almost-deceptively self-deprecating words and style of presentation. Will has just released his latest CD, “C’mon Thunder,” his eighteenth album since 1994, and it is a modern underground pop masterpiece.
